Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are important and interrelated components to create and maintain a congenial, creative and collaborative workplace at Tencent. We firmly believe our commitment to DEI is one of the key success factors for incubating innovation and executing Tencent’s corporate mission of “Value for Users, Tech for Good”.
DEI at Tencent means:
Diversity is to ensure and support differences among our employees, including but not limiting to age, ethnicity, gender, nationality, physical abilities and religion. Our workplace is more enriched when employees with different thoughts, perspectives, beliefs, languages, backgrounds and life experiences collaborate to accomplish a shared goal. Diversity plays an important role in strengthening open communication within the group, creating opportunities for collaboration and innovation, thereby empowering us to stay abreast of the evolving global internet industry. We are committed to implement a steady progress in diversity at the company and board levels in the next years.
Equity refers to the provision of fair procedures and processes to employees in the distribution of opportunities and resources. We will regularly identify and eliminate barriers to fair access and treatment in our operations, including recruitment, promotion, and remuneration. By adhering to the principle of equity, we can attract, nurture, and retain talents who will contribute to the sustainable development of the company.
Inclusion enables employees to participate in the group’s affairs and activities as a valued contributor, to be heard and respected, and to better embrace our corporate culture. Our aim is to maintain an open and inclusive environment that supports and encourages employees to achieve their individual and shared goals.
We implement DEI through the following:
We commit to manage our workplace, where every Tencent employee is respected, supported, and inspired to achieve individual and shared goals, and in accordance with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the International Labour Organization’s Discrimination (Employment and Occupation) Convention.
We believe DEI and its implementation will bring us closer to our users, partners and communities that we serve, enabling us to strengthen the positive impact of tech for good in the society.
